Building Bridges: Standing Rock Sioux Victory over DAPL




Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
National Edition
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
***************************
Standing Rock Sioux Victory over Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL)
with
Jeffrey Haas, who has an extensive background in mass defense
from his days as a lawyer for Black Panthers and co-founder of the
Peopleâs Law Office, a Chicago lawyersâ collective that rose up to
meet its historical momentâthe defense of hundreds of Vietnam War
protesters in the aftermath of the 1968 Chicago Democratic Party
convention. The Peopleâs Law Office would go on to challenge police
brutality and prisoner torture, achieving significant victories and key
vindications. Haas as well authored The Assassination of Fred
Hampton: How the FBI and the Chicago Police Murdered a Black
Panther

Weâll celebrate the victory of the denial of the easement for
installation of the Dakota Access Pipeline by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.

Jeffrey Haas, civil rights attorney who joined the legal team at the
Standing Rock Camp in North Dakota, where Native Americans and
others have been protesting to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline joins us
to talk about the momentous occurrence, and why the struggle isnât over
and the ligation that remains over the violence perpetrated against the
protectors.

The pipeline demonstrators injured by rubber bullets, water cannons
and tear gas canisters during the wintry nighttime standoff with police two
weeks ago have filed a class-action lawsuit against the sheriff of the North
Dakota county involved. The suit describes in new detail the evening of
November.20, when more than 200 people protesting the Dakota Access
oil pipeline were injured by âless-than-lethalâ weapons. The lawsuit alleges
that sheriffâs deputies and police officers used excessive force when they
deployed impact munitions,like rubber bullets, as well as explosive tear
gas grenades and water cannons against protesters. It argues that the
tactics were retaliatory, punishing those involved for exercising free
speech rights.

Veterans join Native elders in celebration ceremony

Wes Clark Jr., the son of retired U.S. Army general and former supreme
commander at NATO Wesley Clark Sr., was part of a group of veterans at
Standing Rock one day after the Army Corps announcement. The veterans
joined Native American tribal elders in a ceremony celebrating the Dakota
Access Pipeline easement denial. Lakota spiritual leader and medicine
man Chief Leonard Crow Dog and Standing Rock Sioux spokeswoman
Phyllis Young were among several Native elders who spoke, thanking the
veterans for standing in solidarity during the protests.
